What do you think of this?

I’m *thinking* of having a tumblr display at AA. Because in the 30th anniversary of transformers we should be celebrating more than just toys.

ie - You submit things (things suitable for our younger attendees to see!) I stick them up for all to see. Fan art, fan fic, whatever. “This is us”

(also considering other sites etc for similar things. I want to show off the community)

Is this a terrible idea? Would anybody want to contribute to that, if I could make it happen?

Tell me something…

Transformers has been doing its thing for three fabulous decades.

What are the three best things you’ve gained from TF?

Spam emails

If you get a spam email from AA, please delete it.

You’ll recognise it because it won’t be 400 pages long and filled with convention information.

The email system is separate to the payment system, so don’t worry about that. It’s just annoying and we are speaking with our host to fix it asap.

Many thanks for your understanding

Great meeting today with the Hilton - home of Auto Assembly. Lots of awesome new stuff agreed :)

Our new event manager likes Transformers & wants to come to the con even though its on her days off. 

(She left her old job as a wedding planner because she prefers conventions and cosplay). 

Nerd power FTW yo. 

Updates soon… and yes, that includes Swerve’s updates :)

Although the pictures don’t really do them justice, I thought y’all might like to see the refurbished single rooms many of you will be staying in at AA. 

This isn’t an upgrade, it’s the cheapest room. For £53 with free breakfast, these are brilliant value.

Panic over

Whilst we were only seconds away from deploying our military arm, the AA diplomats were thankfully able to negotiate a truce with the hitherto hostile Guernsey forces.

Panic over. Everybody is invited again. Be happy :)

Owing to brooding tensions between the people of Brighton and some channel islanders, we are sorry to announce that we shall not be accepting any attendees from Guernsey this year. 

Inhabitants of Jersey are unaffected by the conflict, which has seen the two territories hurling giant blue darts at each other following a plagiarism argument.

One islander, well known for stealing other people’s song titles to head his own work, commented that he felt like a lost light in a world of literary darkness. We reckon he probably nicked that line.

Rumours that Devon has been drawn into the hostilities are as of yet unconfirmed.

It’s that time of year again.  Off to the Hilton for the annual Auto Assembly site visit in a few days. 

We have a new rep this year which means I have to explain who Swerve is again… during a “business meeting”… 

My life, lol

Q: Hello! Are all the rooms reserved?
Anonymous

Howdy!

Rooms are still available. Our first block sold out, so we had a second block added. In a few days’ time I’ll know whether a third block is needed yet.

Cheers

Who wants to volunteer to do crazy fun difficult rewarding weird things at AA?

Because you should. *nods*

Nikki and I said we’re more than happy to help Kat and the other artists set up their rooms for their workshops since both sets forgot last year and we kind of did it anyway XD

This is great but you would need to fill in volunteer forms which means I would own your souls so AAARRGGHHH CONSIDER THE THINGS

(I’m obliged to say that for insurance reasons… Ish)

Auto Assembly commissions 2014 

kingoji:

I’ve decided to go ahead and open pre-order commissions for Auto Assembly. I know that this is really quite early, but that’s because as we get further into the year the less time I’ll have to take and work on them. The earlier I take them the more time I can put into them.
The idea is for collection and payment at Auto Assembly in August, so only request if you are going to be there (or have someone who can collect on your behalf). All sketches will be in B&W.

Prices, prices!
Bust portrait - £10
Full body - £15
£5 per additional character

Thanks everyone.

Get commissions from Ed, Ed is cool!

Come join the fun in August 2014

Q: Sorry if people asked this already, but this is my first time going to AA, and I was wondering how long I have to wait to receive the confirmation e-mail from my booking. Sorry ^^;
hopperlicious

Hi Hopperlicious

Nothing to be sorry about, it’s a good question.

Simon, the Convention Head, processes the bookings in batches. You should hopefully receive your confirmation within two to three weeks of making the booking.

If it has been longer already, please let me know and I’ll look into it for you.

Thanks for choosing AA, you’ll have a blast! :)
